Man charged with stealing thousands of dollars from Casey's
BOONE COUNTY – The Boone County Prosecutor’s Office charged a man on Wednesday with stealing after he allegedly took thousands of dollars from the Casey’s General Store in Centralia.
Court documents said Charles McGinniss, 31, of Madison worked at the store on Highway 22, and would steal money by falsifying documents to corporate and bank deposits, entering fake checks, taking money from the store vault, and putting store money on cards for which he either did not pay or refund the money.
In all, the stolen money totaled more than $17,000. Authorities said McGinniss told law enforcement he could give information about the stolen money, but asked for an attorney and stopped talking before giving any such information.
